How likely is it that my Kubfu's hacked?

  1. A hour or so ago I got A Kubfu in A Surprise Trade whose nickname was SWOSH-X.com, whose trainer name was also SWOSH-X.com, that was holding A Masterball, Special Def was The Stat that was highlighted in Blue, Speed had The Stat that was highlighted in Red and its nature is Naïve. How likely is it that my Kufu's hacked?

  1. Definitely hacked. Any Pokemon nicknamed with a link and recieved through Surprise Trade will definitely be hacked, as PokeTubers and Twitch streamers hack in and Surprise Trade these Pokemon away in order to promote their channel.

  1. It's definitely hacked, but it's probably completely legal (the nothing about it that couldn't theoretically be possible).

  1. Your question to your Kubfu is hacked. Anything that's clone with the TV or .com inside their OT are hacked. They mostly have cloned it or genned under these circumstances.

  3. That's merely a nickname, and the blue + red shows the stats affected by the nature; i think red for +, and blue for -.

    however, that doesn't guarantee it isn't hacked, because ".com" mons generally are. But it's still possible it isn't.

  4. Hello, the mon you got wasn't hacked, I'm a member of their discord. They also send out other pokemon such as 6iv shinies with the link name. The shinies are caught in their 24/7 6iv shiny raids which are free and available to any member of the server. The other ones such as Kubfu which is shiny locked are simply obtained in-game and duplicated via the god egg as well as the master balls. Hope this helps :)

  5. Pokemon obtained through hacked raids or cloning are considered hacked and illegitimate by the wider Pokemon community.

  6. Cloning with the god egg is fine as long as the pokemon is legit and hasn't been hacked, at least according to pokemon showdown's rules.
